Black and white christmas card

 Hi there thanks for visiting
A Christmas card that is a bit unusual but I quite liked making it.

I have used again a very old stamp, one of the first I ever bought I think just stamped and embossed it, used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background and matted on to black, the corners and the circles are cut from a nelli snellen die set, not over sure what I had to do with the edges the die does not cut all the way round so figured I needed to fold it up some how not sure if I got it right. Paper pleated some black card stock to make the rosette and added sentiment, bit of black ribbon and gems from stash also added crystal glitter but does not show up that much

4th birthday card

Hi there thanks for visiting, needed to make a card for a 4 year old princess,did not have a clue what to use, then remembered a girly set of stamps from Crafters Companion, so out it came.
goodness it took most of the afternoon, firstly stamped and coloured the images, then added glamour dust to everything, finally cut everything out whilst watching strictly on iplayer. I decoupaged the castle using 4 images and put everything else on foam pads, the last one added as a flying unicorn using stiff acetate. To finish had to find my shrink plastic then stamped and glittered and shrunk it down.

lotv white with a hint of colour

Hi there thanks for visiting card no 2
ooh this was tricky first time around, only got a big shot so have to think where I am going to emboss. I started out with an a3 piece of card, chopped down the middle lengthwise, I shaped around one end (sorry you can't see because I am rubbish at taking photos) then embossed sections with old sizzex embossing plates, left a bit smooth on the front so I could stamp. I used a lotv stamp, stamped directly onto the card glittered and coloured the base layer, stamped again and cut it out, layered it up with foam pads. I die cut a circle added some waste of another piece behind, then die cut another circle embossed with swiss dots to layer on top. I have used my marianne leaves and swirls and made some little roses phew lot of messing but quite pleased and love the stamp.

lotv majic box

Hi there thanks for visiting, saw these little xploding boxes on lotv inspirations and thought I would give it a go.
Really enjoyed making it, but next time must allow extra space for scoring papers, there is some small gaps when I was covering the box, never mind.
so my pics are not very good
I used lotv fairy on tiptoes stamp. coloured with promarkers, some papers got in a goodie bag.  The flowers I made out of watercolour paper I had splodged pearly paint all over both side before die cutting, added little papermania buttons to the centre of the flowers and added some glitter and smirk ribbon.  The little springy flowers are stuck on to acetate with hot glue gun. I managed to get everything tucked back in the box, not sure how springy it will still be.

I cut all the flowers out and stuck them on with foam pads, added some gems.  Mat and layered with silver mirri and more centura pearl, edged with punch and added some gems and ribbons.
